Ingredients

Gremolata:

  • 1⁄2 cup Wonderful Pistachios No Shells Lightly Salted, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3⁄4 cup flat-leaf parsley, roughly chopped
  • 1 lemon, zested, then quartered into wedges (for serving)

Asparagus:

  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1 bunch asparagus (about 1 lb.), lower stems removed and trimmed

Method

For the gremolata:

  1. Place the Wonderful Pistachios, garlic, and parsley in the bowl of a small food processor and pulse until roughly chopped. Set aside.


For the asparagus:

  1. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat or set a grill pan over medium-high heat. Clean and lightly oil the grates of the grill or lightly coat the grill pan with oil.
  2. Toss the asparagus with the olive oil, salt, and pepper. Place asparagus on the grill and cook, turning twice during cooking time, until tender, about 10 minutes.
  3. Transfer asparagus to a serving plate and garnish with gremolata and lemon wedges. Squeeze lemon over asparagus just before enjoying.

Quick tip

Advance preparation: You can prepare the gremolata an hour or two before you cook the asparagus.
